Change number of 404's before lockout (2 posts)

    Is there a way to increase the limit of 404 requests before a user is blocked? I inadvertently blocked an entire server farm that had over 1000 business centres in them!

    Yes, you can.

    Goto menu > Security > Intrusion Detection. Pay attention on these things:
    - Check Period
    - Error Threshold
    - Lockout Period
    - Blacklist Repeat Offender
    - Blacklist Threshold

    If your website get too many 404 errors, it means there are something wrong. The best thing to do is the find the culprit, not to set the limit higher.
